Missy Elliott: Grave's Disease 'Hasn't Slowed Me Down'

Missy Elliott is speaking out about “some inaccuracies” recently reported about her battle with Grave’s Disease.

“I was diagnosed with [it] about three years ago but it really hasn’t slowed me down at all,” the 39-year-old rapper said in a statement.

“I rocked my performance on VH1 Hip Hop Honors’ tribute to Timbaland last year. I’ve written and produced a bunch of Grammy-nominated, #1 hits for artists like Keyshia Cole, Monica and Jasmine Sullivan. I toured the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. And on top of all that, I’m working on my new album. I feel great,” she added.

Missy also explained she’s been off medication for about a year and has been “completely managing the condition through diet and exercise.”

Glad to hear Missy is doing well!
